Got a call from a woman who wanted a bid on her lawn, just the back yard. Completely normal conversation on the phone, sounded like I was talking to an everyday Jane. I get to her house and I see that she is the oldest person in the world. She sits me down and asks me a few questions. I realize quickly that she is blind and she tells me that she is 98 years old and had a massive stroke a few years back which left her blind. They said she would never walk or talk but here she was walking and talking as intelligently as anybody else. To look at her you would think it was impossible. I gave her my price and she was thrilled because she said no one else will do it because she thinks they are worried about her dying. She said I will be filling out the checks for her, and she will sign them. And she wants to pay every time I mow because she wants to have no debts when she dies. I am glad that someone wanting to take advantage of her had not stopped by before me for obvious reasons. A great experience, what a sweet lady she is. I couldn't help but talk to her for another 15 minutes about... whatever. Humbling to think that a 98 y.o. blind woman a few years removed from a stroke, could be such a strong and wonderful individual. Made a big impression on me. Sometimes it is more than just business.
